This is what you can expect from a socially and mentally primitive people.

Having lived in the middle East and south west Asia for many years under Islamic law, I can tell you that CAIR does NOT want you to see the real face of islam.

CAIR is nothing more than a PR spin doctor to keep civilised nations from seeing exactly what islam really is.

Islam is a cancer on the healthy tissue of the Human race....it is incompatible with freedom or progress.

The middle East had its chance at civillisation over a thousand years ago...and chose to forgoe it in favor of islam, now it is suffering as the worlds most primitive and backwards region on the planet....they are perfectly happy to live in the 10th century under an islamic theocracy..

Let them live that way....just not in the west.

Europe did pretty much the same thing. Then the enlightenment hit and people wised up. if it happens along the same timeline, it should be happening in Muslim countries soon. hey! what's happening in alot of them now? Funny how history repeats itself.

And with our current immigration policies, this is what you can expect over time in America.

A strange way to cast this story. Wonder when the AP and the PiPress will run a headline: "Late-term abortions spark shooting of doctor" ??
Or: "Civl rights demonstration sparks police beatings."
How about, "Wife's nagging sparks husband's assault"?

It's a weird way to place blame on what is a form of protected speech in America for terroristic acts on the other side of the world.
The Florida pastor may be a bit of a cracker; but the murderous terrorism was sparked by something other than his vulgar demonstration, something more organically connected to the terror itself.
And why is it that the AP so obviously finds burning Qurans so much worse than burning Bibles or, say, Books of Mormon?
And why is the world awash in such terrorism based on the childish tautology: "Don't call us a violent religion or we will kill you."

This Florida Freak is in the same boat as these Turban Twisters to begin with.

That said, what's up with Islam that they don't go looking for the offender of their religion, they just go looking to kill "anyone".

Every time any of these Book Thumping religious freaks gets on the news I get this tune running through my head!

Maybe I'm the one

PS: it's kind of funny that a mild pejorative that beings with c, ends with r and usually is paired with "saltine" or "graham," is reduced instantly and automatically to asteriks by the PiPress's internet censor....wonder how many of its readers would be personally offended by the term?
I apologize to anyone for them being offended by that durned word, y'all.
Let's all burn copies of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," I guess....

i don't think it has that much do with the AP or the PP and their wording. They're just reporting what the people doing the killing said they were doing it for.
